After an excellent experience at Ruth's Chris in NYC many years ago, we decided to visit again, for our wedding anniversary, after hearing tv ads. So disappointing. Shockingly disappointing. Crab stack appetizer with soggy cuke slices, and avocado with brown sections. Crab was nice, but how long was that appetizer sitting around? The calamari plate was huge, almost too much,... More

I am always looking for places that fit into my healthy lifestyle. I lost 125 pounds and am the author of "Goodbye Fatness, Hello Gorgeous. " I also search for good quality food. This is the place! A 4 ounce petite filet is so savory, that the ala carte cream sauces offered are unnecessary. Sharing a sweet potato side with... More

I visited here with my wife for a nice dinner and time away from our kids. The location off of Route 1 is a pain to get to but there is plenty of free parking or valet if you choose to use that service. For the apps we got the very good veal ravioli and a glass of teh Dao... More

Wow! Long time since I've been ripped off to this extent! >$30 for an "entree" that was barely the size of a typical starter. Seated at the bar, and I practically had to beg for service. Woefully disappointing. Had to go elsewhere for another proper meal straight after!!!

At first, service was excellent, almost excessive. We were told that a new employee was being trained. By the end of the meal, however, we could not raise anyone's interest. Before walking out without paying, I asked the reception personnel to raise someone. Even after that, it took at least ten minutes to show up. As it turned out, our... More

Ordering the prime cheeseburger and fries for the $9 happy hour price tag was a welcome surprise! I understand they offer happy hours M-F until 7:00 pm. This expanded time period really helps me as I always seem to miss the happy hours that end earlier!

First time at Ruth's Chris. Informed the receptionist it was our 51st Anniversary and we were made to feel we were special guests with Rose petals on the table and a special dessert. Very good wine list and above average food and friendly service.

Thank Scott M
